as for your window, i used a regulator from an'86 4k. 
i had to drill a few new holes and move some bits
around only to have the window only move half the
distance, and you have to pull on it to get it to go
back up.  for the drivers' side, i got a new regulator
(different look, but it fit) and that has lasted only
2 years.  i'm looking to just replace the power units
with manual ones from a 4k 5+5 or something.  so if
anyone has these to get rid of, let me know.
